While the architectural design is attractive, it’s the décor and furnishings that really set Villa Paloma apart. The owners spend a lot of time here (when not rented) and it shows; not only does Paloma look fabulous, it is also a highly liveable and very comfortable space. The wonderful collection of antiques has been hand picked by the owners and reflects both a passion for the culture and artwork of Indonesia, and impeccable personal taste. Villa Paloma manages to be sumptuous without being over the top and feels more like a real home (albeit a supremely luxurious one) than a rental villa.

The true beauty is in the details, the intricate floral designs carved into the antique daybeds and cabinets, the framed tribal neck pieces, the decorative platters on the coffee tables, the frangipani scattered around the boulders by the pool. Thoughtful modern trimmings include crimson batik-edging on the pool towels, and thick soft bath towels stacked in attractive layers of red and white. Separate guest quarters make this villa good value, and ideal for groups or families who want a little privacy. The poolside lounge and casual all-weather dining setting framed by the picturesque garden and a big blue sky is perfect for alfresco meals.

Highlights

We loved the private pool deck of the master bedroom, and the lush bathroom which looked like something straight out of a resort spa, with its huge tub, tropical greenery and freestanding mirrors. It was great to wake in the morning and find the water lilies and lotus flowers had blossomed overnight.

Surprises

There are some mosquitoes about, as is to be expected in the tropics, but a mosquito net in the master bedroom wouldn’t go astray. Although each bedroom has a Television and DVD player, satellite TV is only available in the main TV lounge.
